Meet the person
behind the work
I'm Ellen, the owner and founder of North Star Canine. My practices are based on the belief that we all deserve to be understood, and I work hard to extend that compassion to dogs and other beings. I'm a certified trainer, and I specialize in fear and behavior modification.
My goal is to make your training accessible and sustainable. I know that nothing is more frustrating than trying a hundred different leashes, harnesses, collars, treats, and so on just to get your dog to listen. Together, we'll find the right methods and tools for you and your dog.
